Welcome to the home page for iNetwork’s Tenth Annual Innovation Awards. This year the 2023 iNetwork Innovation Awards are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Innovation Awards. The Innovation Awards have been a fantastic opportunity to celebrate, learn, and share innovation across the local public sector, and its partner organisations over the last decade.

Since 2014, the iNetwork Innovation Awards have successfully cast a light on projects and teams that have delivered transformation and excellence in public service delivery. By highlighting outstanding projects across the sector,  the Innovation Awards represent the perfect opportunity to come together and celebrate the brilliance and dedication of public servants, and their partners, as they strive to deliver more effective, and better value services for their communities.

We are now taking nominations for the Innovation Awards 2023/24, the last chance to submit your nomination will be midnight on Thursday 21st December 2023. All nominations will then be entered into the public vote and go through the judging process. Find out more information on the awards on the awards process page.

All finalists will be invited to join us at the Innovation Awards Dinner and Ceremony at the Manchester Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel on Thursday 7th March 2024.
